Leaving behind friends, family, and life as they know it, the Wards embark on a journey into the Alaskan wilderness that will change them forever.

Winds of Skilak traces a young couple’s adventurous move from the suburbs of Ohio to a remote island on ill-tempered Skilak Lake. As Sam and Bonnie adapt to a life without running water, electricity and telephones, the unforgiving, desolate environment tests their courage early on. Facing sub-freezing temperatures, unfriendly bears, and cabin fever, the Wards find strength in new friends, each other, and the awe-inspiring beauty of “the last frontier.” Just when they finally settle in, a freak accident proves to be the ultimate test of their resolve. Will they be able to survive in this isolated wilderness filled with unseen dangers?

Author Bonnie Ward chronicles an exciting and thought-provoking tale of one couple’s faith in God and dedication to each other through all of Alaska’s curveballs. Winds of Skilak is a true tale of absorbing force, sure to bring out your own sense of adventure.

From the Inside Flap:

"If one is looking to understand the true day-in and day-out routine of being in isolation, then this is a must-read. Bonnie describes life in the Alaskan wilderness beautifully and honestly as she and Sam bravely face all the challenges, adventures, and hard work it takes to succeed in this dangerous far North Country." –Norma Cobb, Author of "Arctic Homestead" "This is a breezy book to read [with] short chapters that finish before you are ready to let go of one adventure and begin another. . . ["Winds of Skilak"] leaves you wanting more, and by the book's end you are rooting for this couple and their dreams." –Cora Holmes, Author of "Goodbye Boise, Hello Alaska"

About the Author:

After fifteen years as a "wilderness wife" in Alaska, award winning author Bonnie Rose Ward now resides with her husband on their farm in central West Virginia. They still maintain a self-sufficient lifestyle, raising goats, chickens, and other barnyard animals, with four dogs and a peacock named George rounding out the menagerie. Bonnie enjoys canning vegetables from the huge gardens sowed by her husband with heirloom open-pollinated seeds, and in her "spare" time, she continues to write her memoirs of the Alaskan wilderness.
